Presentation on current research in gallery to online and physical audience and delivery of workshop thinking through clay to 20 people. Delivered as part of artist Ad Minoliti's Feminist School of Painting.
BALTIC presents Ad Minoliti’s ongoing project The Feminist School of Painting, as part of their solo show Biosfera Peluche / Biosphere Plush.

The gallery space will be transformed for art workshops open to participants of all ages and experience levels.

The Feminist School of Painting seeks to critically reimagine the structure of the ‘art school’, exploring the potential functions of painting beyond the professional status.

The school will reconsider traditional painting genres as a starting point to develop a feminist, intersectional, intergenerational and queer approach to the practice and histories of art, inclusive of trans-feminism and all those who identify as women.
